Degree of love and respect for others


The following are sayings that I came across which are so close and dear to how the Prophet (PBUH) when dealing with each other: 

 The Prophet (SAW) said, “The first person to offer salam receives ten virtues, whereas the person responding gets only one.” We should try not to hurt anyone’s feelings and to be very considerate and courteous to each other. We should not wait until somebody walks over to us and offers his salams. Instead, we should be the ones initiating this and embracing our fellow Muslims in keeping with the sunnah of the Prophet (SAW). If one of our brothers is ill, we should be concerned about him as much as we would be concerned if we ourselves were sick.

None of you truly believes unless he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself.Do not envy one another; do not inflate prices one to another; do not hate one another; do not turn away from one another; do not undercut one another, but be you, oh servants of Allah, brothers.
A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim: he neither oppresses him nor does he fail, he neither lies to him nor does he hold him in contempt. Piety is right here — and he pointed to his breast three times. It is evil enough for a man to hold his brother Muslim in contempt. The whole of a Muslim for another Muslim is inviolable: his blood, his property, and his honor.

I hope to learn something from these hadith.

    Assalamu’alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

    Wonderful post sister, this hadith tells us how important it is the bonding of brotherhood in our ummah and how in Islam we should use the word “we” more often than “I”.

    Jazakillah khairan ya ukhti!
